Donald Trump, ‘Access Hollywood’ and ‘The Apprentice’: The Legal Issues Behind the Tapes | Hollywood Reporter  – more coming it seems – roll up pant legs!

Geraldo Rivera also revealed Sunday that he may have more tapes in which Trump is making “embarrassing” comments, but hasn’t yet decided whether he will release them. “I have interviewed Donald Trump many times and been with him many times and I have tapes,” Rivera said on Fox News. “My brother and I have been starting to go through the tapes now and there are statements that, in the context of the current climate, would be embarrassing.” NBC has aired The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice since 2004, but the shows are owned by Mark Burnett Productions, which is majority owned by MGM. Burnett has declined to comment on Trump and a representative for MGM and its CEO Gary Barber did not respond to a request for comment. MGM attorneys may fear a contract lawsuit from Trump if they agree to release any audio or visual outtakes. The potential complication may be that Trump, as an executive producer on The Apprentice, could have the right to approve any video or audio that is released publicly.But considering an NBC or Access Hollywood insider likely leaked the Trump-Bush conversation to the Post after becoming frustrated with NBC’s lack of movement on the story, perhaps an Apprentice insider will take matters into his or her own hands.
